Smaller formation about 100' tall. I believe only has 2 routes currently. A steep south facing yellow wall.

Getting There 

Take horse trail around the Cspires and past the pickets. The incisor will be on your right after the PF. Pipestem is the formation behind the incisor. (to the SE)

Climbing Season

For the Custer State Park area.

Nice mixed route on N side. Start up crystal band clipping 4 bolts then place gear in disappearing crack as it hooks left. Make a thin slab traverse left to the exposed arete getting 3 more bolts to the top. Comfy belay from bolted anchor just below summit....[more]   Browse More Classics in South Dakota
